No, Mirai Nagasu Does Not Have a USA Tattoo on Her Thigh

No, Mirai Nagasu Does Not Have a USA Tattoo on Her Thigh

Mirai Nagasu made history on Monday in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics when she became the first American woman and third overall to land a triple axel in the Olympics. She was competing in the free skating portion in the team event on day three of the Winter Olympics when she landed solidly on one foot after making three-and-a-half rotations in the air. "I heard them say, 'Start, start, start!' especially Alexa [Scimeca-Knierim] because she has a very distinct voice".

As for Mirai Nagasu, her historic triple axel jump warranted an outburst of messages from veteran figure skaters, including Olympic medalists Kristi Yamaguchi and Scott Hamilton.

"Four years ago when I was left off the (Olympic) team I wanted to make another Olympic team, and I knew I would really have to be something special", Nagasu said.

Following the announcement of the news, in addition to the plethora of social media commenters to congratulate her, several prolific Olympic skaters took to Twitter to tell her she did a good job.

Mirai's jump was doubly impressive because she'd been fighting so hard to get there.

One passenger told Nine News: "We are so scared after witnessing a traumatic experience with yet again the same offenders". David Barkho got a call from 20-year-old son George, who was a passenger, saying he had been injured and needed help.

This is only Nagasu's second visit to the Games, following the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, where she finished in fourth place. At the same event, Nagasu's teammate Adam Rippon landed two triple axels in his routine, which earned him third among the men in the free-skate program. "We felt we were too casual and were using it more as a simulation", Moir said.

"Before Maia skated I gave her a hug and said, "We are all going to be out there with you", Nagasu said. "We're going to get through this together".

American Kimmie Meissner also landed a triple axel at the 2005 U.S. Nationals, but Harding and Nagasu remain two of just seven women ever to land the jump at worldwide competition.

"She's wearing @KTTape, a kinesiology tape to help provide pain relief and support", the brand wrote on Twitter. He was like, 'You're everywhere right now.' I was like, 'I know, I'm like America's sweetheart.' And he just laughed in my face because what you think of as sort of the American people embracing, I don't really think I, on paper, really embody much of any of that sort of perceived persona. Um, a Big Little Lies season two cameo, anyone?

"You're MY hero! ✨✨", Reese responded.
